Voluntary Contributor: May I take financial responsibility for my first suppliers?
Companies that do not have a place of business in Québec are not subject to the compensation plan, even if they offer products or services such as containers, packaging, printed matter and newspapers (C, P, PM & N) to Quebec consumers.
A company that does not operate a place of business in Québec may take financial responsibility for the CP&PM it places on the Québec market. It then becomes a voluntary contributor. This way, the companies that are first suppliers in Québec will not be required to report the CP&PM.
